A lonely Michael Jackson impersonator falls for a beautiful Marilyn Monroe impersonator. The lovestruck duo retreat to a seaside commune in the Scottish highlands filled with impersonators including the Queen of England, Madonna and Sammy Davis Jr.
Director Harmony Korine has been a cult hero of American cinema for two decades now and Mister Lonely, one of his more low-key triumphs, shows his gift for oddball beauty and unique understanding of celebrity and outcasts. A strange, sweet, undiluted vision. Bonus: Herzog and Carax are in it!
